    ABSTRACT: Dupuytren's disease is classified as a benign superficial fibromatosis, in which excessive proliferation of myofibroblats and formation of nodules and chords occurs, followed by development of finger contractures. The similarities between Dupuytren's disease and neoplasms were shown at molecular and clinical grounds. The objective of the study was to review of the literature investigating possible relationship between occurrence of Dupuytren's disease and malignancies. Review of the few available papers shows (1) statistically significantly increased malignant neoplasm mortality among men with advanced Dupuytren's disease, comparing to reference population and men with early stage of the disease, (2) statistically significantly increased malignant neoplasm morbidity, mainly related to smoking and alcohol consumption among patients (men and women) operated on for Dupuytren's disease and (3) increased sarcoma of the bone and soft tissue morbidity in patients 5 years after operation for Dupuytren's disease. Some genetical studies show also altered expression of the dehydrogenases ALDH2 and DHDH genes in patients with Dupuytren's disease and with digestive tract malignancies related to alcohol abuse.

    ABSTRACT: The purpose of this study was the estimation of foetal femoral bone development, based on anthropometric, densitometric and histometric examination. The study was done on 68 foetuses (31 female and 37 male) of various foetal ages (16-31 weeks of gestation). The specimens, ranging 16-31 weeks of gestation, were divided into 3 groups for better statistical analysis. After the left and right limb were removed from specimens each femoral bone was radiographed using a Microfocus 401 bone X-ray apparatus. Radiographs were digitized with an analogue camera and an A/D converter for transfer to a computer. Four measurements were taken for each bone: the total length of the shaft; the breadth of the proximal epiphysis; the breadth of the central part of the shaft; and the breadth of the distal epiphysis. After anthropometric research densitometric research was started within which BMC and BMD measurements were taken by a DPX-L osteodensitometer, Lunar, Wisconsin, USA, for tiny osseous structures. Mean values for results were calculated, and their correlation with the age and sex of the examined foetuses was described. The bones examined were cleared of soft tissues, and afterwards histological specimens were taken from the proximal epiphysis, the central part of the shaft, and the distal epiphysis for histometric study. The obtained histological images were saved on the computer, and processed using a special image analyser. During the experiment the surface area and circumference oftrabeculae of bone were calculated. The obtained values were used for estimating histometric indicators that describe the osseous structure of the proximal epiphysis, the central part of the shaft, and the distal epiphysis. Results of this research from certain parts of the femoral bone were described for the right and left limbs in correlation with the foetuses' age and sex. It has been stated that arbitrary diameters of foetal femoral bone are strongly and positively correlated with the total length of the femoral bone, CRL and the age of the examined foetuses. Anthropometric analysis of foetal femoral bones in the early stage of development do not indicate lateralization features. The mineral content of femoral bones (BMC) indicates a characteristic, positive correlation with foetal age, but the mineral density of foetal femoral bones (BMD) does not correlate with its development. The density of the femoral bone in human foetuses increases with age in all bone's parts and histometric parameters of foetal femoral bones show variability in terms of sex at an early stage of intrauterine development. Based on the given anthropometric densitometric and histometric data the occurrence of foetal dimorphism features has been analyzed in randomly chosen foetal groups. The cluster analysis and analysis of many other parameters of developing femoral bone revealed features of sexual dimorphism in selected groups of human foetuses.

    ABSTRACT: Background: According to the verdict of the Supreme Court in 2005, employer may dismiss an employee if that's conduct (including dress) exposed to losses or threatened his interests. The aim of the study was a holistic assessment of pleiotropic effects of high-heeled pointed shoes on the health condition of women's feet, wearing them at work, in accordance to the existing rules of ’’business dress code. " Materials and Methods: Holistic multidisciplinary analysis was performed. It takes into account: 1) women - employees of banks and other large corporations (82 persons); 2) developed by the authors 2D FEM computer model deformed by foot pointed high-heeled shoes; 3) web site found after entering the code “business dress code". Results: Over 60% of women in the office wore high-heeled shoes. It has been found among people walking to work in high heels: 1) reduce the quality of life in about 70% of cases, through periodic occurrence of pain and reduction of functional capacity of the feet; 2) increase the pressure on the plantar side of the forefoot at least twice; 3) the continued effects the forces deforming the forefoot. Conclusions: 1) It is necessary evolutionary changes of ,,dress code " shoes to lead to a reduction in non-physiological overload feet and the consequent their disability; 2) These changes are particularly urgent in patients with so-called,, sensitive foot".

    ABSTRACT: Ectrodactyly-ectodermal dysplasia-cleft syndrome (EEC) results from a simultaneous developmental abnor-caused by mutations of the tp63 gene. Five mutations: 204, 227, 279, 280, and 304 account for most cases of this syndrome. A case with R304W mutation, characterized by the presence of all major (ectrodactyly, ectodermal dysplasia, cleft lip and palate) and two minor (lacrimal duct obstruction, developmental delay) clinical symptoms of the syndrome is presented. This severe case improves the existing knowledge concerning the genotype-phenotype correlations in EEC syndrome.

    ABSTRACT: It is obvious that sports have beneficial effects on health, but they often pose a certain risk to health. Recent studies point to the growing number of injuries and accidents among players practicing football. Players are injured during a match (65.68%) more often than during training (34.31%). The most common injuries include damage to the lower extremities (97%) including: bruising (56.70%), muscle and ligament injuries (17%), tearing muscles and ligaments (13.40%) and fractures (13%). A forced break in training activity contributes to the weakening of the player's performance, which is why one of the main goals of rehabilitation is to restore it as soon as possible. This paper is devoted to the characteristics of injuries among players practicing football. The survey comprised 102 athletes of both sexes, practicing in Polish football clubs, at various levels of competition, e.g. junior team of players aged under 17 years representing Poland.

    ABSTRACT: First of all, the history and development of Birstonas, a health resort by the river Neman, near Vilnius, first mentioned in 1382, are recounted in detail. The value of this health resort was determined by a mild climate and salt springs. Information on Birstonas by Władysław Syrokomla (1823-1862), the Polish poet, and Zygmunt Gloger (1845-1910), the Polish ethnographer, archaeologist and historian are well known. The indications and contraindications in many diseases, and the effects of treatment in this health resort are described. Finally, the opportunities for recreation and the attractions in this charming health resort are presented. Attention was paid to the leading role of Poles in the development of this health resort now in Lithuania. The biographies of several physicians practicing in Birstonas: Jan Sokołowski, Aleksander T.W. Korewa, Anicety Renier, Stanisław K. Wikszemski, Benedykt Bilifiski, Erminio Andriolli, Roman Przybylski and Paweł A. Sawicki are presented. Their biographies, professional achievements and work in Birstonas are depicted in detail.

    ABSTRACT: The problem of finding the biochemical markers for determining cardiovascular risk is complex, difficult and multidisciplinary. Even in a simple biochemical blood test the number of possible variables significant for indicating the negative changes in the cardiovascular system is high. The image created from a variety of factors is fuzzy, inconclusive and sometimes difficult to define and explain. Contemporary cardiology uses fixed operative levels and the presence of biochemical factors as the basis for patient diagnosis. Even a thorough and multi-biochemical analysis can not give conclusive results. Many precautions are needed in using the results of biochemical analysis. Ambiguous results may be misleading, disrupt the analytical process, or suggest probable, but not necessarily the correct, solutions. This biochemical analysis presented points to the most important prognostic factors and biochemical information used in the cardiological treatment of children and adolescents.
